Playing MLB games during a coronavirus pandemic makes us feel uncomfortable
I turn on the TV at 3:40 PM ET on Monday afternoon and see Chris Bassett, in this glowing shirt, a green shirt, getting ready to meet the Los Angeles Angels in an afternoon sunny day match in Oakland, California. Mike Trout will reach the second position of the angels. Shohei Ohtani returned to the squad as the designated hitter, a day after his failure to log out of his official return to the field. Albert Pujols, celebrating Father's Day, is sixth with the angels, but Albert Pujols still has to appreciate every role in the bat as his MLB career ends.

It's a baseball game, and I think I'm happy because this reassuring background noise creates a summer rhythm for sports fans.

I also see it with a large hole of painful stirring in my guts.

It was a great weekend in baseball. Kyle Hendricks shut down the entire game on Friday to give David Ross the victory in his first game as a youth coach. Eric Hosmer, in the beautiful new Padres lines, hit six runs in the first game in San Diego. Marcel Ozona of Braves surprised Edwin Diaz and the two goals outside the match in the ninth game on Saturday, and even the cardboard pieces at Citi Field cried with misery. In the most daring event, Ji Man Choi, a left-handed hitter, rolled around with his right-hand beating against left-handed commentator Blue Jay Anthony Kaye, and somehow, improbably, the operation of the house fell.

The first weekend of our short season also produced this extraordinary result: for the first time since 1954, neither team has started 3-0. Each team won at least one match. The Giants even split a four-game series with Dodgers. It was a fun, exciting and exciting start to this post-season messy race. It can actually work.

Then we woke up on Monday morning to the sad reality of 2020. After four players tested positive for the coronavirus before Sunday's game, seven other Marlins players and coaches showed positive results, according to a report prepared by Jeff Basan of ESPN. The Marilyn series was postponed from two games in Miami against Orioles. The Yankees and Velez match in Philadelphia was also postponed, as Marlins just played. It took only three days for the worst-case scenario, a major outbreak, to reach the sport.

The news hit the baseball game harder than running Giancarlo Stanton at home.

"My level of anxiety has gone from eight to 12," national manager Dave Martinez said before his team's match. "This really goes home now after seeing half of an infection team go from city to city. I have friends on the Miami team, which is really annoying. I'm not going to lie or wear anything. This is not good for them. No this is not good for anyone. I have guys in our club who are also really interested, and for me this is my family. ”
